Constantine Cavarnos and Mary-Barbara Zeldin






This volume, now printed for the third time, offers a full account of the life, character and message of one of the most popular modern Orthodox saints, St Seraphim of Sarov (1759-1833). It contains a beautiful new life of the Saint written by the late Prof. Mary–Barbara Zeldin of Hollins College, Virginia, a fresh translation of his Conversation on the grace of the Holy Spirit and of his Spiritual Counsels, done by the same scholar, and a long introduction written by Dr Constantine Cavarnos. In the latter, Dr Cavarnos discusses St Seraphim’s life and teaching, placing them in the context of the great tradition of Orthodox monastic spirituality. “This successful joint textual effort” remarks prefessor John E Rexine of Colgate University, “will provide students and faithful with an excellent comprehensive view of on of Orthodox Christianity’s most illustrious saints” — Backcover
